# Hockey Scholar: The Bank Pass

## Activity

When you do a bank pass, you need to focus on bouncing the puck at exactly the right spot on the boards. In this experiment, you will use a protractor to measure the incoming, middle, and outgoing angles of a pass.

#### Round 1

1. What is the incoming angle of this pass?  _____degrees 2. What is the middle angle of this pass?  _____degrees 3. What is the outgoing angle of this pass?  _____degrees #### Round 2

1. What is the incoming angle of this pass?  _____degrees 2. What is the middle angle of this pass?  _____degrees 3. What is the outgoing angle of this pass?  _____degrees #### Analysis

1. Take a look at the data you collected. Do you see any patterns?

2. How does the incoming angle compare to the outgoing angle?

1. Incoming Angle > Outgoing Angle

2. Incoming Angle < Outgoing Angle

3. Incoming Angle = Outgoing Angle

4. There is no pattern

3. Add up the three angles for each pass, in the table below, and see if you notice anything. Subject Fit: Math, Science, or STEM
